Sofyan Amrabat, the Moroccan talent, showcased his stellar performance in a Manchester United jersey during the thrilling 2-1 victory over Chelsea in the recent Premier League clash.
Facing a challenging start to his journey with the Red Devils, the 27-year-old has experienced fluctuations in his role within the starting lineup under the management of Erik ten Hag.
In the crucial defensive midfield position, Amrabat got the nod over Kobbie Mainoo for the recent match, delivering an impactful performance against formidable opponents like Enzo Fernandez, Moises Caicedo, and Cole Palmer.
Resembling his formidable self from his time at Fiorentina, Amrabat asserted control in the heart of the field, amassing 62 touches with an impressive passing accuracy of 92%.
Defensively, he exhibited dominance by winning six duels and executing four tackles, maintaining a flawless record in his dribbles with a 100% success rate (2/2).
Additionally, the midfielder contributed significantly with 11 ball recoveries throughout the game.
While not flawless, the €30 million-rated star displayed growing confidence as the match progressed, particularly shining in the second half.
This notable performance may pave the way for Amrabat to secure a consistent spot in the starting XI.
With the upcoming Premier League encounter against Bournemouth this weekend, Manchester United aims to sustain their winning momentum for crucial matches ahead.
The pivotal clash against Bayern Munich in the Champions League follows, where a victory becomes imperative for their chances of progressing to the round of 16, contingent on Copenhagen and Galatasaray’s match outcome.
Subsequently, a significant league fixture awaits as they face arch-rivals Liverpool in a Merseyside showdown, seeking redemption after the earlier 7-0 defeat at Anfield earlier in the year.
